Washington, Feb. . While the senate
was discussing the Stewart bond resolution
Teller got the floor and said thnt the recent
purchase of United States bonds was a
"forced' purchase. Tlie secretary of the
treasury had in New York stated to the
bankers that if these lionds were not float
ed there would te a panic a greater panic
than the one of last fall and it was to
avoid thnt panic that they reluctantly pur
chased the bonds. "I am "not speaking as
a partisan or as a silver man," said Teller,
"but I want to know wlmt the American
congress is going to ilo with this question
of a deficiency. Kvcrj body knows from the
experience of the secrctaJy f the treasury
that no more 5 per ccn$ bjnds on a 3 per
cent, lwsis can lie sold. Iti morally cer
tain that if another toO.noOO were offered
it would be a failure. -
A tjaeslioa of Dekeiencjr.
MWe are face to face wth the question
whether there is to lie a continued defi
ciency or whether there is to lie some ef
fort to meet this deficiency by t-ome sound
system of finance. The credit of the
country is threatened and ths men who
have la-en loudest in denunciation of He
publican finance have now to stand up
and declare that they have not the skill
or the will to devise a way out of these
difficulties."
IVffer contended that t0 secretarv of
the treasury had not even pretended that
the money derived from the isimls was to
be used for redemption purposes.
A Uveljr Time in the House.
There was some filibustering in the
house, Keed doing what he could to delay
thedelmte on the Bland seigniorage, bill.
He kept the honsc in deadlock for four
hours when Miami mustered a quorum
who were willing to go into commit tee of
the whole on his bill n qjruni that con
sisted partly of sixteen I! tmWirnns, hut
twenty-two Ilemocrats joined the other
Republicans ami refused to vote. Heed's
first move was to insist that the first busi
ness in order was the report of the scrgcant-
at-arms on arrests of absent memlx-rs.
Hpeaker Couldn't See It That tVav.
The sieaker held thnt Uie order for ar
rest was a continuous one -itnd until fully
executed it was not the duty of the scr-
geant-at-amis to niaUc a report, lie stated
a hypothetical case of where a single
mem 1st who was contumacious living in
a distant state was ordered to le arrested.
Such an order having1 ticcn made the

ic arrest was mitfu. is overruled the
point of order. Hoed thf i moved us a
question of privilege that' lie senieant-at-
arnis lie iustructed to make his report.
This being declared out of order he shifted
his ground and moved to reconsider the
vote by which the motitm tourretali-
acntcca was iassed. He declared that he
did not believe It competeiil for less than
quorum to pass such a resolution.

The s)H-uker held that the motion to re
consider was in orler, whereupon llland
moved to lay it on the taiiV This mot uhi
was carried on a riuingjrotc 11 to tw.
Heed demanded the aves and navs and the
roll was called. I luring tlie pronss of
the roll-call the secretary of the senate ap-
appeareil and announced the passace by
I lie senate of the lull to repeal the federal
election laws. The announcement was
greeted with a hurst of applause from the.
Ik-ntocntlic side.
"Now," ejaculated Heed, as lie listened
to the applause, "ballot-box stnflim; is at.
lost a recognised art." The vote resulted
12 to HI, so tlie motion to reconsider was
laid on the table.
COMPONENTS OF THE QUORUM.
A Number la Farar nt Mndirying The
till 4'arii!c In Canf'mice.
Thus it went on, as stated, for four
hours, when the quorum upjicared iu
island's favor and . he got' tiie house into
committee of the whole on his bill, and
lllund explained its provisious, not being
through at adjouruincut. it was thor
oughly understood that quite a number of
Dniocruts who voted with lllaud were in
favor of certain modifications of the bill,
although they won id not curry their op
position to the extent of voting against its
consideration, it is also well known that
Secretary Carlisle and the administration
generally is opiosrd to tins tiiil iu its pres
ent form. After the coiisiA-ratioii of the
bill began Carlisle arrived nt the Capitol j
and had a conference wit It several of the
leading Uemocrats of the Mouse as Well us
those Democrats who were managing the
filibuster, and just before adjournment tlie
announcement was officially made on the
floor by Mr. Tracey that ino further at
tempt to iilihuster uguiust the considera
tion of the bill would lie made.
This is taken to mean that a compromise
has been agreed upon and that certaiu con
cessions will be made, in line with the
auggestions of Carlisle who, while he is
represented as not being against the coin
age of the silver seiguiurage in the treasury.
yet insists that discretionary isnver ought
to be lodged with the secretary of the
treasury about Issuing the seigniorage
either in form of certificates or of coin, so
that it would not be injected in a lump
iuto thecirculating medium of the country
He maintains thnt it would be as injurious
to put out aVsrui.tiuti suddenly as it would
be to withraw that amount from the cir
culating medium, lie is also opposed, it
is understood, to the second section of the
bill, which makes mandatory tlie coinage
of the Kst of the bullion in the treasury
and the redemption of outstanding treas
ury notes under the act of lMKIaafast as
the coinage takes place.
